I bought this after hearing rave reviews on YouTube. I paid $9.99 for a bottle. Somehow it made my hair sticky and not soft at all. I absolutely hated it and so I gave it away. Guess it all depends upon one's hair texture.

I think this is a pretty nice leave-in conditioner. To my fine, damaged hair, I don't want to use one that is too heavy or oily, or my hair will be completely weighed down. This product feels like it's going to gone on heavy, but it doesn't actually weigh my hair down. Now that I've read other reviews, I noticed everyone mentioning that it has protein in it. My hair does not respond positively to protein long-term, so I won't be using this every day. However, I did use it after doing a deep cleanse on my hair, and it worked great. My hair blow dryed out very smooth & shiny. It has very little fragrance (which I like), and a little goes a long way. I would keep a bottle on hand for when I do my hair deep cleanse.

I didn't like this product from the first time I used it. I felt like it didn't add any moisture and made it feel dryer (obviously from the protein). Now I use it in the shower, after rinsing out my conditioner I put a small amount of this stuff into my hair let it sit for a few minutes, then I do a quick rinse so some of this product stays in my hair. I do prefer using it this way.
I won't be buying this again.

I can't say I am all too impressed with this leave-in. I expected, as a leave in, for it to keep my hair moisturized and my ends healthy. I've been using this for about a month or so with no issues to start ... but the past couple of weeks I've noticed a lot of breakage and hair fall. I tried everything to cut back on that with no success. Until earlier tonight I looked into it & discovered this is a protein leave in. Now, this is my fault for not looking into the product more before purchasing ... but as I read the back & from what I'd seen here & there on the web there's mention of "moisture".
I'm not going to purchase this again ... but anyone looking for a protein leave in, here it is! Might be good for others ... just not what I'm looking for.

LOVE this stuff! It's inexpensive, it's all-natural, it has a very light, almost-nonexistent scent, and it makes my hair so soft. I have coarse, frizzy, THICK, color-treated hair, and I use a pea-sized amount on soaking wet hair right after washing out my regular conditioner (Pravana Color Ensure, holla!) Then I comb my hair with a wide-toothed shower comb and wrap it in a towel to absorb the excess water. I do use a styling product (Lush R&B) on top of it, which I apply after I take my hair out of the towel. My hair is the frizziest thing ever, and this really helps tame it. A $7 bottle from Whole Foods lasts me over a year. I'll never be without it!

I finally tried this as a LI after getting it on sale for $5.xx. It feels nice going on to wet hair, detangles well but leaves hair dry, matted and crunchy/crispy. I've tried using this product several different ways and on 2 different heads w/different densities and texture with the same poor results. This has given the worst results I've yet seen on my 5yo daughter's soft/fine wavy to curly hair. Will give remaining bottle to a transitioner to see if she gets better results.

I am very disappointed with this product. It is very thick, so it looks like it should be moisturizing but it ended up drying out my usually soft hair. Without this product, my hair feels soft, moisturized and very shiny but with this, it feels very dry, rough and has NO shine!! My hair feels like it's coated even though it's supposed to be a light leave-in. Will not purchase and now I don't know what to do with this huge bottle.

This product has undergone various formulation changes since it first came on the market. The formulation that I am currently using is the one that I purchased this year - 2013 (which is their most recent formulation). And, I must say, I am very, very pleased with it.
It has a nice creamy texture to it. With this product a little does truly go a long way. If you apply too much, then it will take longer for the product to fully sink into your hair. Also, this product does have a fresh, natural scent to it that is not overpowering at all. And, this product is normally offered in a regular 8.5 oz size bottle. But, there are places that do sell it in liter size too.
I ike to apply this product to my hair at least once a week, after I have fresly cleansed and conditioned my hair. I prefer to appy this leave in onto soaking wet hair versus damp. And, I do make surethat it has been evenly distributed throughout my entire head of hair, before I apply my styler over choice over it.
This product truly is weightless in texture. It never builds in my hair. And, it never leaves my hair with a white cast to it either.
It is great to use for detangling, moisturizing and helping to strenthen one's hair as well (due to the proteins that are in it).

I don't get the rave reviews. I have sorta dry wavy hair. When applied to my hair, when it dries it dries hard and a bit crunchy wherever you put it on thick. And it seems to actually make hair harder to detangle. Maybe it makes it a bit shinier, but this does nothing to make my hair less frizzy and softer. All it is is a bunch of plant extracts and some sunflower seed oil...
Returning this baby, back ya go to Whole Foods.

I can not say how much I love this product! It makes my hair feel soft and doesn't feel greasy. Its just perfect. I still have yet to find something I don't like about the Giovanni line.
